Now available: ixi-UMS Enterprise version 6.60

estos software offers new features and improvements for the unified messaging server

Now available: ixi-UMS Enterprise version 6.60

Starnberg, 8/5/2018

The Starnberg software manufacturer estos releases the new Enterprise Version 6.60 of the ixi-UMS unified messaging software. Redesigned voice mailbox configuration, sending SMS text messages via the SMS service provider, UMS messages without using the e-mail server, faxes in TIF or PDF or PDF/A, as well as a new design for client tools and add-ins – these are the highlights.

The completely redesigned voice mailbox configuration is now even more user-friendly. The menus and settings have been made clearer for the user. The welcome e-mail that each voice mailbox user receives now includes content customized to user preferences, informing them of their access level and eliminating unnecessary information.
In addition, estos has expanded the possibilities of sending SMSs: Users can now use a text message service provider to send text messages quickly, cost-effectively, and conveniently. The options to use SMS via a GSM adapter, VPN or in the fixed network will be retained.
Receiving UMS messages without using the e-mail server allows you to transfer faxes, SMS and voice messages from the mailbox. These are archived locally on the ixi-UMS server. The ixi-UMS web journal allows users to access messages.
Whether a fax is added in TIF and/or PDF format can be adjusted for the individual user in the new version. Previously, the administrator could only select the respective format on a company-wide basis. A requirement is the use of an ixi-UMS SMTP connector. The ability to receive faxes in PDF/A format now extends the electronic archiving capabilities.
estos has also redesigned the ixi-UMS client tools and add-ins. On the one hand, these now appear in the familiar estos design to ensure the products have a uniform look and feel for users. On the other hand, users can now select the desired fax option directly, without a drop-down menu. Basically, they can use the client tools and add-in functions such as AutoFax and can address faxes directly to their contacts.

The ixi-UMS Enterprise unified messaging server combines fax, voice and SMS services under one interface. The user can send and receive all types of messages – e-mails, faxes, voice and short messages – in the usual e-mail client, for example Microsoft Outlook or IBM Notes. They can also access their inbox via smartphone, tablet or PC while on the move and listen to, retrieve, and manage their messages. The ability to receive messages without using the e-mail server adds flexibility: e-mails and UMS messages can be managed separately, if required.

„With the new features and improvements in version 6.60 of ixi-UMS Enterprise, we wanted to offer our customers a little more comfort,“ sums up Bernd Kattner, product manager at estos. „I think we succeeded very well.“

Availability, updates and more information
ixi-UMS 6.60 Enterprise is now available from estos, qualified specialist dealers and trained system integrators. The update to ixi-UMS 6.60 Enterprise is free for companies with a Software Assurance (SA) contract. A fee is charged for the update without an SA contract. An in-place update to Release 6.60 is possible with ixi-UMS Enterprise Version 6.00 and higher.

Software manufacturer estos and the internet communication standard WebRTC

Starnberg company convinced from the beginning of this emerging technology

Software manufacturer estos and the internet communication standard WebRTC

Starnberg, 19/4/2018

Since mid-November, WebRTC has been officially named „Candidate Recommendation“: The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) confirms that the planned features are included in the current version. WebRTC defines a collection of communication protocols and programming interfaces for real-time communication and collaboration on the internet. The abbreviation RTC stands for Real Time Communication. estos has been using this internet technology since the advent of WebRTC in 2012. In 2014, the software manufacturer presented Germany’s first practicable integration of audio/video chat via WebRTC, already integrated into the Unified Communications & CTI Software Suite ProCall Enterprise.

„Companies that use their website today to inform employees, prospective customers and clients will use these websites tomorrow to communicate with them, that’s our vision,“ says Christoph Lösch, Managing Director – Innovations and Technology – at estos. „WebRTC is the foundation upon which we realize this vision.“

With features such as the multimedia business card or the contact portal, estos has taken the first steps: the contact portal makes employees visible on company websites so that visitors to the website can see who is available and by which means. You can get in touch easily and directly with the most suitable contact. The multimedia business card is sent as a link in an e-mail. The recipient opens it in the browser and can then chat with the sender via text, audio or audio/video. With LiveChat 2 in 2018, estos launches another WebRTC-based application. Via a so-called „widget, a suitable contact person and the contact options on the company website can be shown.

In addition to its own developments, estos also opted for cooperation with other WebRTC pioneers at the very beginning: For example, at CeBIT 2013, the software manufacturer demonstrated its initial steps in WebRTC-based audio/video communication together with Plantronics. The innovator for audio technology provided the appropriate headsets for the software.

„We are proud to have been actively involved in the completion of the internet standard as a German software manufacturer,“ summarizes Christoph Lösch. „For example, we were part of the elite circle of ‚Top Ten Bug Chasers‘, as Google informed us in an official letter.“ In the latest version 6 of the Unified Communications & CTI Suite ProCall, WebRTC is consistently part of the software.

App-Domains: A Safe Harbour for Marketing of your Apps

App-Domains: A Safe Harbour for Marketing of your Apps

(Source: HeikoAl)

Apps make the mobile world go „round, and now they have their own more secure home on the web: the App-Domain, the most relevant domain extension for mobile apps.

You can use your App-Domain to showcase a unique and trustworthy destination, as a relevant download link, for deep linking, or for sharing screenshots, release notes, and reviews. Get your App-Domain now to start sharing your app with the world.

Here are the start dates for each launch phase of the App-Domains:
March 29th: Sunrise
May 1st: Early Access Period
The „Early Access Period“ works like a „dutch auction“. Each day you pay less for the access to the registration environment. Please contact us by secura@domainregistry.de to get more information about the Early Access Period.
May 8th: General Availability

Key points about the TLD:
The App-Domain is an open TLD with a focus on improved security. The entire .app TLD has been added to the HSTS preload list, which means registrants will have to provision and set up SSL certificates in order for their content to be loaded in modern browsers

The App-Domain is a secure namespace, meaning that HTTPS is required for all .app websites. You can buy your App-Domain now, but in order for it to work properly in browsers you must first configure HTTPS serving.

The relationship between a better ranking in search engines and new top-level domains has already been proven in a study of Searchmetrics for .berlin domains. Websites with .berlin domains often rank better with regional searches in Google than sites with .de domains and .com domains. The result of the Search Metric study can be summarised as follows:

„In 42% of searches, .berlin domains rank better locally.“

Another study by Total Websites in Houston shows that the results of the Searchmetrics study are in principle applicable to all new top-level domains, including the new App-Domains. Total Websites notes that Google sees the domain extensions of new top-level domains as an important criterion for the evaluation of a domain and, therefore, concludes that:

„It’s clear that the new top-level domains improve the ranking in search engines.“

Tailor-made: Monitor Systems by Customer Request

Monitor Solution Provider Distec Implements Customer-specific Projects

Tailor-made: Monitor Systems by Customer Request

Distec now offers optional PCAP buttons for the robust PCAP POS-Line touchscreen monitors

Distec GmbH – leading German specialist for TFT flat screens and system solutions for industrial and multimedia applications – has strengthened their specification for customer-specific monitor systems. This allows Distec to meet customer requests for increasingly high definition image quality with maximum contrast and large screen diagonals. The demand includes visually appealing design with the latest technologies for touch, PC, and communications interfaces. In order to fulfil the variety of requirements, Distec provides tailor-made solutions in addition to their comprehensive portfolio of standard displays. „We adjust our customized displays exactly to the desires of our customers, however complex they may be,“ explained Michael Dernbach, Product Marketing Manager Display Solutions with Distec. „The outcomes range from modified standard products to completely new developed monitors. At the Integrated Systems Europe Show in Amsterdam, we presented, for example, customer-specific displays with 4K UHD PCAP technology in large sizes up to 75 inches.“ In addition, Distec is now able to equip industrial POS-Line touchscreen monitors with capacitive buttons on request.

Buttons and Touchscreens on One Panel

Responding to customer requests and market needs, Distec now offers optional PCAP buttons for the robust PCAP touchscreen monitors and panel PCs of the POS-Line monitor series. Although touchscreens, when indicated with multi touch, are in high demand for industrial HMI technology, they will not replace classical button control elements completely in the near future. Quite the opposite: it is even en vogue to integrate both into one panel. „Industrial customers often prefer a combination of touchscreen operation and conventional buttons,“ stated Michael Dernbach. „Classic buttons mainly serve as controls for security-related commands.“

Industrial POS-Line Monitor from 15 to 24 Inches

The well-proven product family combines the newest technology with the latest, most appealing design. This provides an appropriate solution for all users requiring a robust metal housing for rough working environments, reliable 24/7 operation and (depending on use cases) a variety of different controller and front options. As needed, a CPU with passive cooling provides noiseless operation at 0 decibels and thus extended shelf life of the devices. In combination with front-end IP protection of up to IP65 and a temperature range from -25°C up to +65°C, they are ideally suited for use in harsh industrial and digital signage environments such as process and data visualization in production and logistic buildings, or digital signs in public areas.

About Distec
Distec is a company of the Fortec Group, the worldwide operating specialist for TFT flat screen and system solutions for industrial, multimedia and digital signage applications. Located in Germering near Munich in Germany, the company designs, produces and sells innovative solutions and a full range components, displays and services. Data Display Group supplies innovative Green IT solutions based on their hardware platforms and their own software to control the TFTs of partners AUO, Innolux, Kyocera, Mitsubishi, Ortustech, SGD, and Tianma as well as selected panels from other manufacturers.

New on Plesk Onyx: SEO, AI on WordPress, Performance and Security

Plesk introduces the brand-new Plesk Onyx major update at CloudFest, a world-leading conference geared toward the cloud, hosting, and service provider industries.

New on Plesk Onyx: SEO, AI on WordPress, Performance and Security

Plesk Onyx version 17.8

Schaffhausen, Switzerland and Rust, Germany – March 12, 2018 – Plesk designed their innovative platform especially for web professionals, digital agencies, and service providers. They provide online businesses of any size with the right tools to simplify their daily operations. Today, they release the new Plesk Onyx with enhancements in four key areas: SEO, Site Performance, Server Security, and WordPress Smart Updates with the help of AI.

Your visibility is our responsibility
Getting found with the help of search engine optimization (SEO) is a key success factor for all online businesses. It“s not easy competing for rankings with so much keyword competition and full transparency for customers. Your users are smart – they know what to look for and how to get it.

So, you need to stand out from the crowd if you hope to accelerate your online sales. That“s why Plesk Onyx v17.8 now integrates its own SEO Toolkit, helping your form and execute your SEO strategy. By enabling you to monitor your keyword rankings and benchmark yourself against your competitors – all from one place.
Check out the SEO Toolkit for free to explore more premium features, like the Logfile Analyzer and Competitor Analysis.

Performance and Security are key
More and more web professionals enter the community with a broad range of skill levels. However, server and infrastructure management still slips through the cracks. To bridge these gaps and guide you, the team created Plesk Advisor.

Now, no matter your skill level, you can boost your web projects with state-of-the-art security and performance settings in your corner. No need to be a server guru or security expert because Plesk Advisor shares the best practices with the entire web pro community around the globe. Just follow the recommended actions and fix all detected gaps grouped by sections with just a few clicks.

With Plesk Advisor, you get:
– HTTP/2 to speed up all your hosted websites“ loading times.
– Security alerts for early warnings about potential reliability and security issues. Plesk Advisor will analyze and compare your server configuration to thousands of live servers around the world.
– The Google Authenticator Extension to enable two-factor authentication for extra protection around user accounts.
– Non-disruptive Kernel updates to protect your server against security flaws and vulnerabilities with zero downtime. Because it installs Linux kernel updates without rebooting the server.
– SSL/TLS Certificates because a trusted Certificate Authority not only adds to your security, but also boosts your customer“s confidence in your business.
– The Secure CMS to automatically and safely remove malware and patch vulnerabilities in most common content management systems (CMS) like WordPress, Joomla! and Drupal.

Have Artificial Intelligence update your WordPress
Hardly any other technology is changing lives more than AI nowadays. We have machines steadily getting better at learning and processing info, similar to and sometimes even faster than, humans. Naturally, we got in on the action and found a way to automate WordPress using Smart Updates, powered by AI.
WordPress takes the cake for being the most popular CMS to build websites. Thus, a preferred target for malicious attacks. Although there are many WordPress security plugins out there, it still remains a primary concern for the WordPress community.

Using AI, the new Smart Updates feature helps mitigate these attacks by keeping your plugins, themes and WP core up to date. Smart Updates runs a staged simulation to analyze and verify the compatibility of each available update, comparing the before-after screenshots to check for differences, before applying the update to your production environment.

„Machine Learning is not the future, it“s already here“, says Nils Hueneke, CEO at Plesk. „AI will transform major parts of the internet. From doing rudimentary update tasks and helping to secure websites, it might someday automate security operations of an entire web presence.“

Jan Loeffler, Plesk CTO, adds „We“re thrilled to announce that WordPress Toolkit on Plesk Onyx 17.8 uses machine learning based artificial intelligence to check if the WordPress update procedure is likely to break something. And it’s all done without breaking the production site.“

With the Plesk WordPress Toolkit, you“ll get:
– Overview and manage all your WordPress sites from one dashboard
– Singularly or mass-execute updates to the WordPress core, themes or plugins
– Stage, clone, sync, update, migrate and execute other complex tasks with one click. No more stressed-out dev teams, no more high-risk activities and no more cowboy coding
– Hardens your site by default, further enhanced with the Toolkit“s security scanner. No security expertise necessary.
Available on Plesk Onyx version 17.8 only:
– New interface for managing WordPress instances, getting a faster and focused WordPress Toolkit experience
– Smart Updates: WordPress updates will be analyzed by a machine learning based Artificial Intelligence to ensure the update procedure won“t break the production site
– Configuration of caching for WordPress instances can be easily done with
a single click

IDEAL Networks data cable testers cater for testing and verifying both copper and fibre cable. Testers which offer Ethernet transmission testing and cable certification to provide proof of performance are also available.

To enable network issues to be identified and resolved quickly, IDEAL Networks provides a selection of network testers that support network connectivity troubleshooting. By effectively solving issues around incorrect IP configuration, rogue network services, network bandwidth issues and PoE supply, downtime for customers can be minimised.

IDEAL Networks“ CCTV security testers offer installers a versatile tool for completing all key tests for both setup and troubleshooting. Similarly, the various telecom testers from IDEAL Networks offer comprehensive features for testing, monitoring and troubleshooting fixed line, mobile and wireless network interfaces efficiently.

Acronis Announces Partnership with Plesk, Provides Easy Way to Back Up Servers and Restore Website Data

Acronis – Plesk partnership gives web hosters an opportunity to increase average revenue per user and reduce support calls by allowing web professionals and IT admins to back up and restore their own data.

Acronis Announces Partnership with Plesk, Provides Easy Way to Back Up Servers and Restore Website Data

Plesk will incorporate Acronis Backup Cloud into its website management platform and control panel.

Schaffhausen, CH, January 23, 2018 – Acronis, a global leader in hybrid cloud data protection and storage, today announced that Plesk, a leading WebOps platform, will now incorporate Acronis Backup Cloud into its website management platform and control panel, giving hosting and cloud service providers an easy way to back up Plesk servers and allowing web professionals and IT admins to restore their own data.

To protect Plesk servers, service providers just have to install the Acronis Backup Cloud agent on their physical servers and virtual machines and add the Acronis Backup Cloud extension to the Plesk user interface.

Acronis Backup Cloud is a powerful hybrid cloud backup-as-a-service solution specifically developed for service providers. It offers complete business protection and allows users to store data locally, in the Acronis cloud, or the service provider“s datacenter. It is part of Acronis Data Cloud platform, which also includes disaster recovery, storage, and file sync and share services.

Acronis Backup Cloud integration with Plesk brings a wealth of benefits to web professionals and service providers alike:

* Service providers can run full image server backups, storing them in the Acronis Cloud, and use backup files for disaster recovery or server migration.
* Server backups are visible in the Plesk UI, allowing server administrators to run backups, manage backup space, and offer self-service capabilities to customers for a fee.
* Web professionals can use the familiar Plesk UI to restore their own server environments, files, emails and databases in a secure way.

Website security is a growing concern. Cyber criminals take advantage of website vulnerabilities to inject malicious code and distribute malware, making website files difficult to clean. Files can also be accidentally deleted or lost following an account suspension. This makes backup the only reliable method to ensure site availability and avoid permanent data loss.

„Web professionals understand the importance of protecting their websites but are often intimidated by the complexity of traditional solutions. Acronis Backup Cloud addresses that head on with a one click solution. Once enabled, hosting customers can perform granular self-service recovery of a website or individual files, mailboxes, and databases without contacting support,“ said John Zanni, President of Acronis.

„Partnering with Acronis we bring the world“s best cloud backup solution to millions of Plesk users. „Backup and Restore is no longer a nice-to-have for websites, but a must-have,“ said Nils Hueneke, CEO at Plesk.
